Annual Business Meeting Kicks Off Convention

Let’s face it, annual business meetings can be boring. But the 77th Annual  Washington Credit Union League’s meeting last week was anything but.

Before the call to order was made, Michigan Credit Union League  President & CEO Dave Adams, who is the former president of the Washington League, announced that his League’s Invest in America, in partnership with Sprint, credit unions and credit union leagues, has pledged $700,000 to Biz Kid$.

Additionally, Adams said that Invest in America will reach out to credit unions and leagues with Sprint marketing agreements to raise the remaining $1 million. The credit unions and leagues will hopefully agree to donate at least 10 percent of their reimbursements to BizKid$. 

“This wonderful gesture shows the credit union system’s commitment to a proven financial education program that will remain a credit union funded program into the future,” says Washingotn Credit Union League President John Annaloro.

The announcement brought a round of applause for Adams and Invest in America.

Immediately following the Annual Business Meeting was the Annual Reorganization meeting, where the board officers were elected for the coming year.  At that meeting, all of the currently sitting officers were re-elected for another term, and Yakima Valley Credit Union President & CEO Mina Worthington was elected secretary.  While the Executive Committee was elected to one year terms, each member has an understanding that the board officers will probably change when the merger with the Oregon Credit Union Association is complete.  A new Executive Committee will be elected at the combined board’s first meeting, in January 2011.
